Join us in the courtyard behind MakeHaven as we honor the champion mask-makers who sewed and donated over 3,000 masks to community organizations betweeen March - June of 2020, when masks were greatly needed for our essential workers and not commercially available. We also honor the great folx who helped create thousands of face shields, constructed much-needed intubation shields for Yale New Haven Hospital, and the innovative makers who built the Ambo-Vent last resortventilator. The makers really stepped up in a time of great need.
Enjoy food and drink and stories of searching for elastic. Say thank you to the makers who helped keep our community going. Check out what they make when they aren't sewing mask after mask after mask!
All are welcome, sewist or not! Come together in celebration.
